Tony Holiday & the Velvetones
Salt Lake City, Utah
Performing: Sunday, May 27 @ 1:30 pm
Salt Lake City isn't one of the first places that come to mind when thinking of blues music, but for Tony Holiday (harmonica, guitar, vocals) that's where he found it. Growing up on country and bluegrass music by way of people like George Jones, Hank Williams and Bill Monroe, Tony was in love with music from an early age.
His band Tony Holiday and the Velvetones landed gigs opening for Willie Nelson and Blind Boys of Alabama by the time the band’s guitar player Lanny Stone was only 21.
Holiday and Stone co-front the band and co-write all the songs, leaving Joel Me-za (drums) and Cody Downs (bass) to lay the groove. Tony Holiday and the Vel-vetones tour the U.S.A most the year coast to coast, and will be debuting in Eu-rope September 2017.
Tony has shared the stage with Willie Nelson, Beth Hart , Jimmy Vaughan, Blind Boys of Alabama, W.C Clark, John Nemeth, Guitar Shorty, Mark Hummel, Lazy Lester, Curtis Salgado, Tinsley Ellis, Aki Kumar, Greg Izor, Brandon Santini , Adam Gussow and many more.
